A field of corn catches carbon from our air quite efficiently. That field captures about 400 times as much carbon as humanity annually puts into the entire column of air above the field, from ground to space. Sequestering corn residue after harvest is far less costly than taking such quantities industrially from the air above.
Where to put such gathered bales of corn residue? The deep ocean—which naturally receives huge quantities of biomass from the land, carried by rivers. Existing analysis shows such carbon will not return to the atmosphere for many centuries, perhaps 1000 years.
The CROPS System is simply adjusting the world carbon cycle to speed up a natural process—organic matter flowing downhill in waterways, into the ocean.
Our mission is to provide the CROPS System globally and expeditiously to help mitigate the effects of excess carbon in the atmosphere.
Our team includes the scientists that developed the original concept, experts in business, law, and finance, as well as strategic partners with exceptional capabilities in land and sea transportation.
